Ah technology. Well my oldness has beckoned. I got to spend a couple of quality months inside lately due to a hip replacement project. And yes, just to let you know, rebuilding your ass so you can function again as an active human being is a project. And it includes copious amounts of opioids. PT, ice, oxycodone, sleep, rinse and repeat. Old age is not for sissies. And I gotta let you know: if any you folks decide to go through stuff like this, you cannot and will not listen to the Dead for at least a month. Unless you are one of those who doesn't involuntarily jiggle when you listen. I jiggle. A lot. It's great to be mobile again. Happy impeachment day to you all.

Hip replacement is no joke ... I have had 6 (three on each hip).
Keep up with your PT and watch out for those meds.
Best wishes !!!

Missed you DiamondHead!

Hello to my hero from the 49th, or is it 50th, State.

Your state sounds tough but OK cuz you made it.

Sorry you had to go deadfree for an entire month?
What did you do for music? Nothing?!?

Actually now in NW. As for music: downtempo/trip-hop/ambient stuff life thunder storms/lot of hawaiian. For me it was tough; I like the beat. Actually I've become a big proponent of Dead dancing as I've gotten older. It's not quite tai-chi but it has a lot of similar qualities like flowing rhythmic movements and balance. I used to have a massage license. :)
